Well folks, hope you enjoy this tutorial.

This 60 degree rule (or some know it as 45 degree rule) is not something really new. But I guess it could be useful for some of us, so I decide to share it with you... so let me know if there's any room of improvement. You can download the Beginning file from http://www.deviantart.com/view/17463039/

Flattening part, I shall leave it to your own decision. Some people want to keep it as a PSD file, so that they can go back and change it. I prefer it that way too, for leaving it as PSD file. I dont really encourage flattening the pictures unless you want a JPEG file for uploading, etc.

for 60 Degree rule... yes it is the tone for the general skin colours. Normally its between 45~60 degree depending on the lightings as well.

Me? You can consider me as a n00b in photography. I've just got my first baby DSLR in Feb 2005, and started shooting like crazy...lol... Im a Multimedia Student... doing my Degree in NAFA. Photography is my hobbie.

another :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: for the expert, save me a lot of reading, concise and straight to the point. ;)

Waiaung, incase if you r working on your 3rd tutorial, I wonder would it be better to continue on this thread? as some of us has email notification activated, we won't miss your subsequent tutorials.

BTW, does Degree in NAFA also teach phototgraphy too??

just my 2 cents

Thanks for the suggestion.:light:
Most probably, I would leave a note in this thread whenever I post new tutorials, so I can put my tutorials under appropriate Title, as well as to inform everyone of you, those subscribe this thread...

My Degree in NAFA doesnt not teach about photography. But there are courses about Photography in our school, and I saw the Photography studio, and Photography dark rooms around...

But where did you pick up all these skills in photoshop? is photoshop taught in your degree?
